Surfer The Bar Turtle Bay

Turtle Bay Resort is already a surfer's paradise, being located at the Kahuku end of the 7 Mile Miracle that is the North Shore. Their days are spent bobbing up and down along the various breaks that line the North Shore and the nights often spent gathered around the Billabong or Volcom House near Ehukai. But now the of-age portion of sponsored wave riders have a place to wet their whistlers after their board shorts dry. Surfer, the Bar - the brain child of Surfer Magazine and partner Turtle Bay Resort - is the official watering hole for surfers and fans of the culture that happen to find themselves on the beautiful country side of Oahu.

Surfer, the Bar

While many expect a tiki vibe from a bar born from a surf mag, Surfer instead puts a contemporary twist on the concept and has created a modern lounge style atmosphere where neither an umbrella drink or martini is out of place. Before any old salty dogs scream "sell out!" one is quick to notice that aside from the contemporary flare Surfer, the Bar is still about surf culture through and through. On any given day Jack Johnson could be found on stage and joined by visiting WCT pros who have a knack for strumming along side him or any other platinum selling musician that happens to be in town. Other days it's more common to find local Hawaiian artists doing their thing in front of a crowd clad in everything from slippers and board shorts to button downs and slacks. The vibe is always chill and at all times surfing can be found on loop on the LCD screens surrounding the establishment. The drink menu is ripe with the expected tropical flare and the service comes with 100% Aloha. Singles mingle, couples enjoy each other, and everyone leaves with a smile on their face as they head towards their respective (or otherwise) rooms in Turtle Bay or spill out safely (no DUIs please) onto Kamehameha Highway until their inevitable return.

Surfer, the Bar

Note: If you happen to be on the island during the Vans Triple Crown of Surfing the Surfer Poll Awards have been slated to continue at Turtle Bay Resort and aired at Surfer, The Bar.

La Mariana Sailing Club Tiki Bar

Many travelers conjure up images of "authentic" tiki bars lining the sand dusted sidewalks of Honolulu. They expect every other nightlife establishment to hang rope-harnessed sea glass and swollen pufferfish from their rafters while 50's surf tunes serve as the soundtrack. Sure there are more than a fair share of bars displaying carved likenesses of Lono, Ku, and the lot but authentic tiki bar status they cannot claim. La Mariana however, can be considered nothing but. It's Keehi Lagoon location could not be better, collecting local salty dogs and companions from their marina docked homes while the tourist component is kept at a level to keep things bustling on a weekend evening but never crossing into kitsch "attraction" territory. La Mariana is part museum, part legend, and all tiki - what more could you ask for from a Honolulu seaside bar?

Tiki Town Waikiki

Traditionally one has to mentally prepare themselves to enter Waikiki's International Marketplace, plotting the best zigzagging course to avoid pushy vendors hocking Hello Kitty iPhone cases. "Relaxing" has never been a word used to describe anywhere within the square footage confined by the market. Until last year.

Tiki Town broke ground on the western facing lot of International Marketplace in 2012 and since then has become the only reason to venture in for many passer-byers. Two of the largest representations we've ever seen of the tiki god Ku stand guard, bookending the entrance of Tiki Town, becoming the most photographed corner of the Marketplace in recent memory. This open-air establishment spared no expense in creating an out of this world tiki bar experience with bigger than life (and lore!) statues and tropical flora shrouding patrons from the bustle of the marketplace. People may come to Waikiki for a convenient escape from the Mainland, but people in Waikiki come to Tiki Town for a convenient escape from, Waikiki.

The menu at Tiki Town includes Hawaiian island style comfort foods. Standout PuPu's include the Tiki Wings or the shared plate of Hawaiian Nachos (w/Kalua Pig & mango pineapple salsa). Favorite handhelds are the Pele blessed Volcano Burger (1/2 lb beef patty w/cheese and doused in house sauce) and the fresh MahiMahi Sandwich. For plate lunch/dinner we suggest the hefty serving of Kalua Pig Lau Lau which comes with a side of poi, lomi salmon, rice and haupia as a finisher - an excellent value! 

Belly filling aside one cannot forget that Tiki Town is indeed a tiki bar and thus no visit is complete without stamping your personal rum card full of Tiki's Tropical Specialties. The Freaky Tiki (coconut rum, vodka, blueberries, and pineapple juice) will have you feeling frisky as you spill out onto Kalakaua Avenue afterwards while the Tiki Sunrise (light rum and guava juice) is great for those that want to keep things light. They also serve domestic, imported, and Hawaiian beers in addition to local wines so that your tropical island mood is set to the beverage tune you want.

All of the above served up with aloha spirited service makes Tiki Town one of the funnest evening destinations in Waikiki.

Tropics Bar and Grill Waikiki

While we could have easily recommended this outdoor/indoor establishment in either our Dining or Nightlife section we opted for the latter for the simple reason that its location is so exquisite for a relaxing evening on the south shore Oahu. The fact that Tropics has one of the best Mai Tai's - an island staple - in Waikiki is another big bonus. Located one stride off of the sands fronting the famed Hilton Hawaiian Village, Tropics Bar & Grill may be a relatively new addition to the after-dark scene in Waikiki but it has fast become a major destination point for those seeking a casual island hangout with a touch of class, yet zero pretension.

The best night to plop your aloha shirt or hibiscus patterned summer dress into a comfy lanai seat at Tropics Bar & Grill is on Friday when the Hilton lights up the sky with its weekly fireworks display. Sipping a world class Mai Tai while witnessing the night sky light up over the south shore of Oahu? Not a bad way to spend an evening in Waikiki.

Five-O Bar & Lounge

Capitalizing on the recent reboot success of the new Hawaii 5-0 TV show, this like named bar & lounge recently opened within Waikiki tourist hub - The Royal Hawaiian Center - and is already buzzing with activity. The Five-0 Bar & Lounge serves a light dining menu with daily PuPu specials but they actually allow you to bring in bites from the adjoining food court. This level of hospitality is also evidenced in the bar's aloha spirited service, accented perfectly by live local music and a varied drink menu with many items that read similar to the island themed name. Be sure to stop by during Happy Hour, which at the time of this review, runs from 11am to 6pm. As with any new addition to the nightlife landscape, time will tell if Five-0 Bar & Lounge will outlast the TV show as a staple in Waikiki, but for now we can say for sure that you will enjoy mingling in a cool, contemporary atmosphere along with other fans of...fun.

Arnolds Tiki Bar

Arnolds Tiki Bar is a hidden getaway along the obscure strip of Waikiki Beach real estate on Saratoga Road. If you are a regular visitor to Waikiki but have not ventured on into Arnold's then you have certainly passed it while venturing over to Eggs'n'Things and the Hilton Hawaiian Village. "Hole in the wall" is an overused descriptor found within many travel guides but such an identifier is apt to Arnold's. Look for a tiki totem and a sidewalk sandwich board tempting tropical happy hour specials and live local music and you've found the right spot. This indoor/outdoor tiki bar is the real deal. This is no tourist spectacle by any means. You may feel as if you've wandered into some local backyard BBQ but the welcoming vibe won't let you feel like an intruder. Arnold's is the kind of bar where you can sit on a vacant perch, order a cheap draft, a chili dog (they make great hot dogs), soak up the vibes, and end up mingling with the locals and regular visitors within the hour. It may not be photogenic, you may not be able to return home with a souvenir ceramic tiki mug, but you WILL have a great time if you give it a chance.

If long lines, dress codes, cover charges, and jaded doormen that refuse to make eye contact (until they study your ID) are your thing, then Zanzabar is the place to go. Close to the beach but far from the typical beach scene bar, Zanzibar loses the tikis, board shorts and bikini appeal of Waikiki and instead mimics South Beach Miami or Vegas - without the cred. To it's credit it gets jam packed on the weekend and the crowd can be quite attractive so if your in the mood to toss aside the flip flops and bamboo seating in search for a more Mainland night out on the town then you will have a blast at Zanzabar. Come with patience, a heavy wallet, and no expectations.
